Miller was held to just one tackle and no sacks in the season opener but fared better Sunday. Unfortunately, he did leave the game with a groin injury in the second half, according to the Denver Post. Miller may be limited in practice this week depending on the extent of the injury. The Broncos travel to Seattle in Week 3 for a Super Bowl rematch.

Last year's No. 13 Fantasy DST should finish as a Top-10 unit this year. But the group might not mesh right away. And Sunday night's game against the Colts, with a whopping over/under of 55, is going to be a shootout.
Indy gave up the 11th-fewest Fantasy points to DSTs last year (7.56 per game). Sit the Broncos DST in Week 1, if you can, then start the unit Week 2 in a much more attractive matchup against Kansas City.
"I've had a lot of practice at full speed," Miller said. "And with all the practicing here with the Texans, I think it will help make the game seem a little easier. I'm excited."
The Broncos have been practicing with the Texans in recent weeks. Miller is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season, and Saturday could be the only tuneup he needs, with just one preseason game left.
"I’m in a great spot," Miller said. "Recovering from an ACL is nothing -- I’m out here playing the game I love and I’m feeling great."
Miller did post-practice sprints Monday and was near the front of the pack, the report said. His knee brace does not seem to be holding him back.
"I try not to let my brace be an excuse or a reason why not to do something," Miller said. "It’s the brace, it’s what I’ve got to wear. I feel like I can play football without shoulder pads, but I’m not going to let wearing shoulder pads have me out there like, ‘Man, I can’t play football today.' So having the brace on is just part of it. It’s what I’ve got to do."
